[27 JUN 99] LOOKING FOR OLD SCHOOL FRIENDS

I went to Binley primary school (started 1949) before moving on to Binley Park Comprehensive (1955-60).

I was a member of Spence House at Binley Park and I played soccer and cricket for the school. I remember 'Guys' Trevor Bedford, Hugh Kennedy, John McKenzie, Bob Ashcroft. I also remember 'Gals' Carole Hemings, Silvia Saunders, Jackie Batt.

I was apprenticed at Baggington (AWA) and also GEC Telecom's stoke and Helen Street.

[27 JUN 99] WEBCAM

I'm in Florida USA. How marvelous to see any live views of my mother's home city. I would like to see some other areas but even this is a pleasure.

Visited in 1986, but my father visits as often as possible. He and my sister will be there this August. The family name is Samuel.

[24 JUN 99] FREEMAN OF COVENTRY

I regularly visit this site as I like to keep up with the news from around COVENTRY. 

I am a Freeman of Coventry and very proud of it. For economic reasons I left Coventry in 1973 and now live in New Zealand. We settled in Auckland and the move has proven to be the right one for my family but even so we still miss Coventry and by visiting your great site we are at least able to see what is happening over there.

We would love to here from anyone that may know us. I served my apprenticeship at Gorvic Products - part of Coventry Grinders Ltd. I also worked at Dunlop, Unbrako, Morris Engines. I was also in The Coventry School of Music Band and Foleshill Baptist Boys Brigade. I attended Ash Green secondary modern school as did three generations of the Gilder family.

If anyone knows us or would like to correspond we would be very happy. My wife's maiden name was Elaine Oughton from Whitmore Park Road in Holbrooks.

I went to Moseley Avenue primary school (1945-50) and Coundon Court secondary school (1950-55).

Any of the first 120 pupils that moved from Keresley Prefabs to the new school out there?  Anyone remember the fire? Yvonne Arculus where are you?

[23 JUN 99] MORE WEBCAMS

I just want to say that the on-line webcam is wonderful. As a graduate of Coventry University, the webcam you located recalls my memory concerning my living in Coventry.

However, is it possible to locate some other webcams in other areas, such as the view of the Lady Godiva, Cathedral, West Orchards Shopping Centre, the Sky Blues, etc.

Kindly consider my opinions. Thank you very much!

Best wishes

Eddie Cheng  < bseddie@polyu.edu.hk >

[Editor: We receive many emails enquiring about the possibility of more webcams - we are very happy that they are well used. We are currently looking at potential new sites - the first will hopefully be announced in the next couple of weeks. One problem, of course, is that they do cost money!  If anyone would like to sponsor a webcam please contact us.]
